Without a mirror,
I must peer at sky and stone
to discern my face.

  1. Ah, lovely.. beautiful.. MMT..

  2. Sharpens the senses……Keen.insight and good judgement!!

  3. The sky can reflect if we truly see, I think 🙂

  4. Lovely skies, perfect words and great composition as always! And as always, I do enjoy visiting your blog! Hope you have a great weekend!


  5. Love the sense of elevation in the picture….and see the truth that sets you free.

  6. Nice photo and words.


  7. Wherever we look, there we are if only we would see.

  8. And perhaps your soul… Terrible feeling to be invisible, isn’t it? As though one isn’t really there… Good couplet–a triplet, I suspect?

  9. Great haiku. We are reflected in all of creation are we not. If the sky is our mirror that is our divinity, our limitlessness and stone is our foundation,. Just a thought.

  10. Oh yes and a very true reflection you might see floating with the clouds 🙂

  11. Another good take on the prompt. Don’t you love it when a poem prompt brings out too many ideas for a single haiku? 🙂
